Dream The Change is a Community Interest Company that is an enlightened, interconnected, empowered hub for families who have children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), from diverse backgrounds, especially from Black Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) groups.
In partnership, we aim act as one voice to bridge the gap between families and service providers in Essex, and surrounding areas, in order to influence them and decision-makers to improve support and services available and the quality of life for these families and their children.
We’re fully aware of the ethnic, cultural and linguistic barriers that minority families can face. We endeavour to gather your opinion in order to reach out on your behalf to local authorities and decision-makers to share your views and experiences, while enhancing your support network and working towards a brighter future.
To help us realise our dream for change, we organise activities for Colchester and North Essex families who have children with SEND, aged 5-12 years-of-age, of diverse ethnic, national, cultural and linguistic background. Have a look at what we offer
We organise parent seminars, training days, and workshops
for parents/carers of SEND children, build a parent support group and arrange social events for the families and their children, like after school clubs and trips to Colchester Zoo, Jump Street or Jimmy’s Farm.
